Show me mercy
When words fail me
When eloquent thoughts fall short
When I know not how to pray

I ask for nothing else
But care and kindness
A demonstration of my Father’s love
An illustration of his protectiveness

You’ve left me for too long
Or maybe I was the one who left you
But I’ve been back for a while now
And I am lost and afraid

Can we continue from where we left off
Those days of optimism and promise
When I had dreams and goals
When I looked forward to each day

Show me mercy
That’s all I need
Not material things
Just the grace you freely give
